SUNY Cortland Student Life Center





Divided architecturally and functionally into three distinct areas, the new Student Life Center includes a dining center and a full service recreational facility with a large entry lobby/gathering space connecting the two.  Playing off of the sharp angles of the interior space, the lighting includes a family of circles and cylinders that tie the three spaces together while giving each a distinct identity.  In addition, the climbing and bouldering walls can be highlighted with color-changing lighting, the Yoga room features a “starry sky” ceiling and the Spin instructor can connect the sound system in that room to the perimeter lighting to provide a color-changing light show that moves with the beat of the music.  Illumination Arts designed the lighting for all of these spaces as well as the natatorium, fitness center and public concourse.
